We are thrilled to annouce the arrival of our 40s inspired swing pants!

These have been painstakingly researched and are adapted from a late 30s pattern. With a few tweaks here and there, the pattern has been altered enough to fit the modern woman and our modern eye without compromising the vintage details.

High waisted with four lovely quality shell buttons on the left. Wide leg with turn-up at the bottom. So comfy and perfect for dancing!

Key vintage features:-
- high waisted 
- 4 shell button fastening on side
- turn up
- wide leg

These are a mid weight fabric, warm but breatheable. Rayon/poly mix with a little bit of spandex for stretch, hand wash recommended.

Inside leg 31 inches, select size by natural waist measurements.

Made in the UK

These trousers are high waisted - going approx. 1 inch above natural waist. Trousers can be harder to fit people due to there being extra measurements to consider such as body length as well as waist, hip and thigh. However, this style has proved very popular and seems to fit people well.

The leg width isn't as wide as our 30s styles (fabric wasn't as readily available in the 40s!) but measures 56cms at the widest leg width part on our size 10.

So - we advise to choose by waist size but also to consider hip and your thigh measurement. This is not a great style for pear shapes but great for pillar shapes or inverted triangles.

Our trousers are made with fabric that has a touch of stretch in it - we call this a 'comfort stretch'. This means that there is a little margin if your measurements don't come up exactly like our size guide.

For more information on fit and sizing please visit our size guide. The measurements refer to 'your' body not the garment itself. Please choose the size that most reflects your measurements.

Love these trousers - so comfortable & yet so flattering. Because these don’t have a zip there are no bulges. The material is quite heavy, which means they hang nicely (but may be a bit too warm for the summer).


I’m pear shaped, but find them to still fit well. I did size up though - I’m a UK8 in HoF skirts, but I knew my hips would be too big for the 8. As it is, I find the UK10 to fit very well. Definitely go by waist size, but if your hips push you into the next size I’d definitely recommend sizing up if you’re unsure.

Lovely fit and very flattering; trousers looks so much better when there are no bulging zips, etc on the front. I ordered a size 12 and I am 5 ft 6 inches and the length is perfect.
